Join Igor, a ZGVS-aspirant guide, for this unforgettably fun, scenic and exciting 1-day ski touring ascent and descent from Mangart Saddle. Pass through forests, mountain pastures and streams en route to the crux of the saddle before racing back down into the valley below.



1 Day

Jan - Mar




* Take in the stunning scenery of the Slovenian Julian Alps

* Make a varied and beautiful ascent up to the Mangart Saddle.

* Enjoy a fun and thrilling descent back down into the valley.


Sitting on Slovenia's northwestern border with Italy, Mangart Saddle is a popular ski touring destination in one of the most interesting parts of the Julian Alps!

Our adventure in the Mangart and Ponc mountains begins from Bovec-Predel road. From here, we start by ascending along the road before branching off and heading through a mountain pasture along the righthand side of a stream.

After awhile we will rejoin the road, staying on it intermittently and occasionally heading off into the wilderness.

Finally, we will arrive at Mangart Saddle. From here, we will enjoy some stunning views of the Julian Alps in both Slovenia and Italy before beginning our descent back to the trailhead.

Along with the views, the descent is the highlight of the trip. We will ski down various mountain passes and through some sparse forests before arriving back in the valley.

Overall, the skiing is not too challenging and the views will be plenty rewarding!

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and exciting 1-day ski touring trip to Mangart Saddle in northwestern Slovenia!

If you like the look of this trip, but were looking for something just a little bit longer, then I think you may also enjoy my 3-day ski touring traverse of Trigalv National Park!

Aspirant Guide

I am an aspirant IFMGA mountain guide, born in 1987, from Vuhred, now living in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have been discovering mountains from an early age. I started climbing at the age of 15 and now it has become a way of life.

During my active years as an alpinist, I have been on four expeditions to the Andes, Himalaya and China and I was nominated for the Piolet d’or for the ascent to Xulian Feng in China.

I like all types of alpine activities such as alpine climbing, sport climbing, ski touring, etc. Overall I like to spend my time in the mountains. That is why I decided I not only want to climb for myself, but to guide other people, so they can experience what I have until now.
My mission as a mountain guide is to provide you the safest way to discover mountains, so that you can explore the vertical world in a different way. I will guide you to more or less populated mountain trails and climbing routes.

Igor was a great guide. This was my first tour and he was very patient and very happy to pass on his considerable knowledge. Stunning surroundings and great snow made for a fantastic experience. Thanks!
